What we do

Building homes. Building community.

We partner with public and private organisations to build homes and community facilities – projects with positive social and economic benefits. It’s our mission to ensure that every family in New Zealand and throughout the world has access to sustainable, secure, and healthy housing.

Our Values

Our values define us, guide us and ground us, making sure we stay true to our vision.


Whatever we do we do it with humility. We aim to please. Our purpose in each day is to make life better and easier for everyone we come into contact with. We actively seek out these opportunities and are prepared to sacrifice, time, resources and comfort to achieve them. Service is our attitude.


Whatever we do, we do it with all of our ability. We seek to find enjoyment in every task. We don’t discredit the little things. We understand that what we do serves a greater vision. We understand that our work enables our passion.


We do what we say, and say what we mean. We remain the same day in and day out regardless of the circumstances. We don’t take shortcuts. We do things the right way regardless of the cost. We treat people fairly and with dignity. We never talk behind someone’s back.

Hard work

We accept what needs doing and we do it without being asked. We work continuously at a task until it is finished. When faced with an obstacle we find a way around it. We never give up.


Despite set-backs, upsets and disappointments we continue forward and we look for solutions. We are ever hopeful. We are prepared to be wrong when we are right. We don’t sweat the small stuff. We accept we all make mistakes and are there ready to show grace to others at all times.

Team work

We have each other’s back. We achieve together or fail together. We promote unity at all times. We always trust those we work with and give them the benefit of the doubt. We expect the best from our team and ourselves. We understand nothing of worth can be achieved unless it is with others.


We aim to be the best and do our best in whatever task we undertake. If we don’t get it right we will persist until it is put right. We recognise that quality is as much an attitude as it is a result. We understand that excellence is about the continual pursuit of perfection. We will always go the extra mile, work that little bit harder, and take the extra time to do it right.

Shared values, different walks of life

We’re a diverse team of talented individuals bound together with a common passion and purpose. We look to create change in communities and to deliver value for our clients.
